Congressman Mo Brooks tells the truth about immigration, the media clutches their pearls

It happens every couple of weeks, Alabama’s most quotable Congressman speaks some obvious, albeit harsh, truths about something happening in the country and liberals start to squeal. Whether he is calling his Democrat colleagues “socialists“, explaining the racial aspect of the Democrats’ campaign strategy, or talking about defending the border, Huntsville’s Mo Brooks says what he is thinking. It happened again when Brooks visited CNN to talk about illegal immigration:

Why this matters: The word they are quibbling with is “invasion”. As usual, Brooks is right. The definition of invasion is, “an act of invading; especially incursion of an army for conquest or plunder”. Illegal immigrants as Brooks points out are invading our nation, crossing our borders illegally, and plundering our country. They are coming for this reason, they aren’t coming here to help us, they are coming to benefit. President Donald Trump and Rep. Mo Brooks have this in common: They are straight-talking and honest about illegal immigration and they don’t care if that upsets the liberal elites.

The details:

— There are more than 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States.

— 8 million illegal aliens are in the American workforce, taking jobs and driving down wages for Americans.

— According to a Center for Immigration Studies report, there is a net cost to taxpayers of nearly $63,000 per illegal immigrant.

— Brooks referenced this study, which says illegal immigrants cost state, local and federal taxpayers $116 billion dollars a year in net tax loses.
